This collaboration means that gift retailers no longer have to spend time and resources building their own internal gift registries. has developed a software solution that’s so simple to install, users can get it up and running on their websites and in their stores in a matter of days.

“It’s a fact,” said President, Nancy Lee. “If a retailer that sells gifts doesn’t have a gift registry, they are missing out on their share of a $35 billion industry. But our cost-effective universal software solution is the easiest way for them to get in the game.”

According to Lee, the universal gift registry software is compatible with all major website platforms. It’s also customizable and requires minimal investment or technical experience to install. She added, “It used to cost tens of thousands of dollars to implement a cross-channel integrated gift registry system. Now, retailers can take advantage of our yearly software plan, which gives them the same benefit but costs little more per day than a latte.”
